    Pete Rose In Attendance and Honored At GAPB in September?

    Not sure if this has been posted but watching the Reds play on the Marlins's network here in Tampa and they just repoted that Bud Selig has approved the Reds honoring of Rose breaking Ty Cobb's record.

    Both Selig and Rose supposedly will be there.

    Interesting...

    You know, this will only spark up the reinstatement discussion once again.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Sounds like a great night to me. With any luck it will be a packed house watching a first place baseball team honoring, probably, the single most signifigant player in the history of the franchise.

    Well said Santo. Well said indeed. I may just have to look for tickets for that game.

    would be a great venue for Selig to announce that he has taken his head out of his arse and reinstated 'ole Pete! btw I can't believe Pete hasn't been pimping "just for men".

    As soon I heard about this I started making plans to attend the game. We're planning on buying our tickets sometime this week. Hopefully it will be a packed house watching a first place team.

    Has there been any official announcement from the Reds about this?

    I think it's a great idea that should guarantee a packed house.

    Wow. This plus a pennant race would make this the most anticipated Reds v. Pirates game since GABP opened.

    Some details are starting to come out. This is from John Fay. There will definetly be a ceremony but apparently it can't be on September 11th because Rose already has an apperance scheduled at Hollywood Casino (Insert gambling joke here). So it may happen the next day September 12th. Exact details should be announced soon.

    Thanks for the update. I almost pulled the trigger last night for tickets to the 11th game, but glad I didn't now.

    Cool. I'm planning to be at the game on the 11th. It'll be the 25th anniversary of my being at the game when Rose broke the record.
